Song History http://phish.net/song/say-it-to-me-santos http://phish.net/song/say-it-to-me-santos <p>The origins of the members of Kasot V&auml;xt is a bit unclear. From what we can piece together from the <a href="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/assets.livephish.com/78erphish2018456tr4/Phishbill2018.pdf">Phishbill</a> for the Halloween performance, the members of Kasvot V&auml;xt all met as either scientists or subjects while living briefly in a remote research bunker in Greenland in the late 1970s. &nbsp; &quot;Say It To Me S.A.N.T.O.S.&quot; answers a few questions&mdash;but leaves us with many more&mdash;about the group&rsquo;s time in the bunker. Given that &quot;S.A.N.T.O.S.&quot; stands for <a href="https://underthescales.simplecast.com/episodes/557eb791">Subterranean Arctic Neuro-Technology Orientation Station</a>&mdash;we can assume that the conspiracy theories about a remote bunker involving a&nbsp;top-secret perception-enhancing government experiment have some &ldquo;truth&rdquo; to them. &nbsp; We still don&rsquo;t know exactly what &ldquo;You will always be remembered&rdquo; for&mdash;or even &quot;What space smells like.&quot;&nbsp;Unless you want take Mike Gordon&rsquo;s <a href="https://twitter.com/mike_gordon/status/1064358602469560321?s=20">word</a>&nbsp;for it&mdash;in that case, it&rsquo;s cherry plus spruce. &nbsp; If we are to believe Kasvot V&auml;xt is a real band, with a real album, there&rsquo;s no doubt &quot;Say It To Me S.A.N.T.O.S.&quot; would be the hit single from <em>&iacute; Rokk</em>. The song has true classic rock potential;&nbsp;with a heavy bass groove and a super funky clavichord. By the end of the song you&rsquo;re fist pumping and shouting &ldquo;This is what space smells like!&rdquo; &nbsp; The debut on <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/phish-october-31-2018-mgm-grand-garden-arena-las-vegas-nv-usa.html">10/31/18</a>&nbsp;is definitely filled with that fist pumping energy&mdash;even though the entire audience had no clue what to think about this elaborate prank. It is notable that the Phishbill includes the huge heading &ldquo;We are vapor, we are lost&rdquo; for the article describing the album costume&mdash;but these lyrics are missing from this performance. Trey reveals during the <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/trey-anastasio-december-03-2018-ikeda-theater-at-mesa-arts-center-mesa-az-usa.html">12/3/18</a>&nbsp;and <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/trey-anastasio-december-14-2018-macky-auditorium-concert-hall-boulder-co-usa.html">12/14/18</a>&nbsp;acoustic&nbsp;performances that he forgot these additional lyrics during the chorus. &nbsp; [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcRNExwn_wU[/youtube]<strong class='credit'>Phish &rdquo;Say It To Me S.A.N.T.O.S.&rdquo; &ndash;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.phish.net/setlists/phish-october-31-2018-mgm-grand-garden-arena-las-vegas-nv-usa.html">10/31/18</a>, Las Vegas, NV.

But what hadn&rsquo;t been known was how deftly Phish would weave songs pertaining to the night&rsquo;s donut flavor into the setlists.

It&rsquo;s an ordinary slice-of-working-life story about a recently sober 50something looking back on his life and finding inspiration to move ahead with more personal work. For Phish/Trey fans, and for anyone moved by tales of gifted people entering their autumn years, it will offer intense if familiar pleasures.</p> <p dir="ltr">It being about Trey, though, it&rsquo;ll also be a little strange.</p> <p dir="ltr">And infectiously joyful.

Some make you dance. Some make you rock out. Some make you think. Some freak you out. But the really rare and special kinds of shows leave you dumbfounded and speechless. Laughing incoherently, amazed at whatever it was you just witnessed, wearing a shit-eating grin, and incapable of putting into words what you and 30,000 others just experienced. Sunday night, <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/phish-july-14-2019-alpine-valley-music-theatre-east-troy-wi-usa.html">July 14, 2019</a>, was one of those rare &amp; special Phish shows where everyone in the venue, and those following at home, all felt let in on a secret joke the band has been telling for 36 years. Bustouts, rarities, hi-jinks, lectures, and the longest jam of 3.0. It was a kitchen sink kind of a show and one that will surely be discussed with the best of the era, up there with <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/phish-august-31-2012-dicks-sporting-goods-park-commerce-city-co-usa.html">8/31/12</a> and <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/phish-july-25-2017-madison-square-garden-new-york-ny-usa.html">7/25/17</a>.</p> Mon, 15 Jul 2019 05:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@howard_roark) Blog Alpine2 Recap: Big Fun On Brown Tarp http://phi.sh/b/5d2b38fb http://phi.sh/b/5d2b38fb <p><em>[We would like to thank Doug Kaplan user <a href="https://phish.net/user/MrDougDoug">@MrDougDoug</a> (<a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%40hausumountain">@hausumountain</a> on Twitter) for recapping last night&#39;s Alpine show.

Another night at <a href="https://imgur.com/a/sWVcPcu" style="text-decoration:none;">Alpine Valley</a>: a venue that whenever I return to it, it feels like the <a href="https://imgur.com/a/ufd4UOK" style="text-decoration:none;">venue&rsquo;s farewell run</a>. Surprisingly and delightfully, things have been roughly 42069% smoother than the last several runs I&rsquo;ve attended, and it seems to me like the venue&rsquo;s star may be rising again. Who knows y&rsquo;all, maybe LiveNation finally sympathized with us, after all of the complaint emails after Bon Iver destroyed the galaxy? It&rsquo;s certainly much more preferable for me when the band plays a hometown show in Chicago proper, but hey&hellip; renting a <a href="https://dnr.wi.gov/wnrmag/2012/04/images/lake.jpg" style="text-decoration:none;">lake house</a> with eleven of your best buds in the world is a pretty excellent way to spend a weekend.</p> <p><figure><img alt="&copy; 2019 Phish Rene Huemer" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/2019-07-13 Alpine2 trey (Rene Huemer).jpg" /><figcaption>&copy; 2019 Phish <a href='http://www.renehuemer.com/'>Rene Huemer</a></figcaption></figure></p> Sun, 14 Jul 2019 10:53:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Alpine1 Recap: Ignition http://phi.sh/b/5d2a1699 http://phi.sh/b/5d2a1699 <p style="margin:0in 0in 8pt">Alpine.</p> <p style="margin:0in 0in 8pt">In the &ldquo;real world,&rdquo; alpine holds a different meaning: mountain slopes, evergreens; otherwise peaceful, placid, serene - much like the drive through waving, rolling corn fields and green cow pastures that leads into the venue.

I&rsquo;m not certain if Mohegan N1 had an overwhelming amount of flow, but the entire &ldquo;weekend&rdquo; (which is what it felt like) had enough overflow to make up for it. Perhaps that overflow would spill into the arena tonight. Proudly donning my Hartford Whalers t-shirt, I was more patient waddling through the security line than I would&rsquo;ve guessed.
